Recipe by Celeste :)
Chutney is a sweet-tart condiment with the consistency of jelly. Any fruit chutney can be served in place of the mango flavor that's called for.

This was pretty good. It caught my eye because I love all of these ingredients: curry, gr. onions, chicken, couscous etc. I followed the recipe exactly and it did not take long. My husband and I had this for dinner. I didn't give it 5 because there were so many strong (perhaps conflicting) tastes going on in my mouth. It was a bit different for me to combine green onions and cantaloupe and have them in the same bite. I am still not totally sure I like the cantaloupe in there even though I was excited about it initially. Incidentally the couscous concoction was terrific. I also thought of adding something crunchy like toasted nuts or pine nuts on top to garnish. So yeah, I wouldn't say I am raving about it, but I'll save the recipe and probably make it again. Perhaps with cantaloupe on the side next time because I do think it's a good accompaniment.
- 2 1⁄2 cups water
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 (10 ounce) package couscous (1 1/2 c.)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup mango chutney
- 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 5 green onions, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 cup grape tomatoes, each tomato halved
- 1⁄2 of a cantaloupe, seeded, rind removed (melon cut into 3/4-inch cubes, about 3 cups)
- 3 cups torn butter lettuce leaves (Boston or Bibb)
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
Directions See How It's Made
- In a medium saucepan bring the water and curry powder to a boil. Stir in the couscous and salt. Cover the saucepan; remove the pan from heat. Let stand 5 minutes or until water is absorbed by the couscous.
- Stir about half of the chutney into the couscous mixture.
- In a medium bowl combine the chicken, green onions, tomatoes, melon, and remaining chutney.
- To serve, arrange torn lettuce on 6 individual plates. Spoon couscous onto the lettuce then top with the chicken mixture. Squeeze a lime wedge over each serving.
